Tips for Winterizing Your Home Plumbing

Tips for Winterizing Your Home Plumbing

The winter season is not favorable to the plumbing system indoor or outdoor, but there are certain steps you can take to ensure that your pipes and faucets are ready for such harsh weather seasons. Making sure your pipes are insulated, perhaps is one of the best ways to prepare your plumbing for the winter. The insulation is a thick layer of tubes that wrap around the pipes. The insulating tubes comprise polyethylene or fiberglass that can protect plumbing fixtures from extremely cold temperatures, thus making them last longer. Though insulators can be found in hardware stores, it will be better to contact plumbing technicians to apply them to your plumbing fixtures before the winter seasons.

Allow the Faucets to Drip

In addition to the little investment in insulation, you may want to allow your faucets drip overnight especially if the temperatures are going to drop below freezing levels. When you allow the faucets to drip overnight, you will be able to reduce the pressure that builds in the pipe as a result of extreme cold temperatures. When faucets are allowed to run and pressure reduces, then pipes are much less likely to burst even when they freeze. Please contact us at Leak Detection of Atlanta for leak repair & inspection and plumbing repairs, replacement and upgrade installation service. 

Other Tips and Ideas to Winterize Your Home Plumbing

Fixing the exterior cracks in the walls of your home can prevent cold air from seeping into the home to reduce temperatures around your pipes. Once you locate the cracks, you can apply caulk or simply spray foam installation to fill them up. If you can’t handle this procedure yourself, please contact professional plumbers for help.

In addition to pipes, other areas of your home can benefit from insulation, just to protect your plumbing system during the winter. The crawl spaces, garage doors, and basement windows, for instance, can also be insulated to protect your pipes and faucets. Cold air will surely seep through these places and then make contact with your pipes. If the openings are not sealed or insulated, your pipes are at risk of freezing and eventually burst. You can make use of cardboards to cover vents and then duct tape the cardboard to keep it in place.

Contact Plumbing Technicians for Help

In addition to sealing off or insulating gaps in the windows, garage doors and crawl spaces, you may want to open the cabinets below to sinks in the home to allow some heat enter, especially during the winter season.

One area of winterizing preparation many people ignore is the need to have professional plumbers inspect their plumbing system. A detailed inspection will help discover leaks and other plumbing problems that can be resolved before the winter season. If you need to winterize your home or commercial plumbing system and make them last longer, please contact us at Leak Detection of Atlanta.
